Sand and surf are just 2 blocks away at the newly ‘rebooted’ USA Hostels Ocean Beach. Housed in the former Ocean Beach International, the hostel has been completely remodeled with a new look and new furniture in all rooms and on the large outdoor patio. But the hostel still retains its laid back, beachy vibe, friendly staff and lots of freebies including a new FREE shuttle to the Zoo, SeaWorld and downtown. Sunscreen and a swimsuit are all you need when you stay with us! We loan out beach gear and have low cost rentals to try your hand at surfing too.

We’re surrounded by restaurants, bars and shopping in the heart of Ocean Beach but also have plenty going on at the hostel to keep you busy. Check out our list of activities and amenities below:
